Sergeant David Joseph has retired from his role as Goat Major after 35 years.
He led Shenkin the goat onto the Millennium Stadium pitch before Wales v Australia yesterday.
Sgt Joseph, who must look after the goat every day of the year, told ITV Wales: "I'm looking forward to a holiday with my wife. We haven't been away since the 1980s."
